March 25, 2019

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement following Senator Udall’s announcement that he will not seek re-election in 2020:

“Tom Udall is a class act in every way. He is principled, smart, and hardworking and when he gets up to speak, every senator – Democrat and Republican – already knows how well-thought-out and sincere his remarks will be. His leadership in the Senate on reforming the campaign finance system, protecting the environment, advocating on behalf of Native communities, shepherding legislation to protect Americans from harmful chemicals, and so much more has been invaluable. He will be greatly missed in the Senate.”
